Words of Wisdom

  • When we remember that we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.
  • – Mark Twain
  • Whenever a particular freedom is put in question, freedom in general is put in question.
  • – Karl Marx
  • Too much consistency is as bad for the mind as it is for the body. Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.
  • – Aldous Huxley
  • I didn’t really say everything I said.
  • – Yogi Berra
